So the coach is exactly the same but for emissions purposes, the recommended cargo carrying capacity is 200 lbs lower?

Yes and no...exactly the same unit, but we have to make it lighter (so 200lbs more carrying capacity). To get better "fuel economy ratings" instead of changing the engines they just test the engine with a lower "curb weight". In the end, you the customer are going to load the unit all the way to 9350, but we get caught in passenger vehicle emissions standards, so....

In 2015 let's say you needed 17mpg. SO they tested that unit with a curb weight of 8400 lbs.

In 2016 they need to cut their emissions by 1%. So they run the same test, but only let you load it to 8200 lbs. They satisfy the EPA standard, we have to jump through hoops to cut 200lbs of weight (not always a bad thing). And in the end, you're still driving down the road spewing emissions at 9350. In 2015 and 2016. You just get to take another person this time.

Elite package is easier to tell if you have skirt paint (gray paint on thee exterior, lower portion). That would indicate the elite package. The furniture was really just a different supplier and had the 3-point seat belt.

As for the mattress. It looks like parts just got one in today and it was an iCool. That's the only one we order for the REV RB now.

Thank you. Just to clarify by "3 point seat belt" do you mean one piece that pulls down across both the waist and the shoulder? Looking forward to getting the cool mattress. Thank you again.

rev24RB, sorry the mattress that came in was for another product.

Shoot me your VIN and contact info. If we see the order come in from the dealer, I'll see if I can sub in the iCool.
